Back in February Mollie at Wild Olive announced that she’d be hosting a stitch swap that would run the month of March. I submitted my name, interests, and favourite colours. Someone, some place in the world has my name and will be sending me a little bit of handmade goodness by March 31st.
My stitchee indicated what she likes, and I then set out to create that for her. My first attempt was pretty bad, but I’m happy with what I finally created. I found a picture of a cephalopod that looked like it would be fun to stitch. I threw in the pencil-thin moustache last, and I think it makes it perfect.
I’ve decided that his name is Cuthbert Smythe-Jones, III,
and he’s quiet the ladies, uh, octopus.
Per the instructions, he’s stitched within a 4″ hoop. I added a couple of extras that I made that I hope my stitchee will like.
All items will go out into the mail on Monday.
